The chunky-look cables and different textures just add to the cosy feeling of this outfit, and offer a nice challenge for experienced  knitters. Although it looks bulky, this cosy yarn is actually lightweight and comfortable, and is spun from three strands with an extra twist to provide a durable surface – ideal for little crawlers.

This pattern is for the more experienced knitter as it entails reading from charts and knitting on a circular needle. If you’ve knitted cables before you should be able to master it without too many problems and if you’re unsure, why not practise the charts with scrap  yarn before starting  the jacket using the alpaca yarn.
